A special meeting of the Oswego County Legislature that was to be held Tuesday was postponed with no reason given.

A public hearing on the proposed legislative district lines was held Dec. 13 with legislators taking no action. The special meeting was called for Dec. 18 and the cancellation notice went out Dec. 17.

The proposed reapportionment map is expected to be heavily debated when it comes up for a vote.

Also on the agenda was the consideration of a contract award for the asbestos abatement project at the Department of Social Services complex in Mexico.

The project, which has increased substantially in cost from the time it was first proposed, hence, legislators requested that they have the opportunity to review each bid. The legislature has also set the organizational meeting for Jan. 3 at 2 p.m.

At that time, a chairman and vice chairman will be elected and each caucus will name their pick for majority and minority leader.
